of them not so nice. let me tell you my favorite -- it was when mitt romney came to britain and called me "mr. leader." i don't know about you but i think it has a certain ring to it myself, it's sort of half- way to north korea. mitt, thanks a lot for that. let me tell you a bit of insight in to conference. i always look forward to conference. but the leader's speech, as previous leaders will attest, can be a bit of a trial. you get all kinds of advice from people. say this, don't say that. smile here, don't smile there. stand there, don't stand there. thanks tony, gordon and neil for that. but sometimes you get a bit fed up with it as the leader. and so the other day, and this is an absolutely true story, i decided that to get away from it all, the speechwriting, all of that, i'd go for a walk with my three year old son, daniel. it was an absolutely gorgeous late summer day. so we went out, i wanted to go to the park. here's the first thing he said to me, "daddy, i can help you with your speech." i was, like, not you as well. he is a miliband after all. and he said to me, "daddy, you ca
that he and the people of great britain and london deserves enormous credit. they have staged one of the most magnificent olympic and paralympic events ever, and the bulk of the world is a beneficiary. it really is a pleasure to be here, and thank you for letting a yank crash the party. i was thinking of jumping in a helicopter with boris and parachuting in, but the last time he was suspended in air it did not work so well. it is great to be back of the conservative party conference. i was with here in 2007 in blackpool. my wife grew up not far from there, but she would say it was very far from blackpool. her father was a wing commander and during the war my mother in law was a radar operator for them. i am not sure whether she could tell the difference a tree and a german fighter plane and a canadian news, but we did manage to win the war. all is well that ends well. over the years, my ties to u.k. have remained strong. my two daughters have british passports, and my company employs 2500 people across great britain and is building a new headquarters right in the heart of the city
of britain. at a time when people felt uncertainty, even fear. here was the challenge -- to make an insolvent nation solvent again. to set our country back on the path to prosperity that all can share in. to bring home our troops from danger while keeping our citizens safe from terror. to mend a broken society. two and a half years later of course i cannot tell you that all is well, but i can say this -- britain is on the right track. [applause] as prime minister it has fallen to me to say some hard things and to help our country face some hard truths. all of my adult life, whatever the difficulties, the british people have at least been confident about one thing. we have thought we can pay our way. that we can earn our living as a major industrial country, and we will always remain one. it has fallen to us to say we cannot assume that any longer. unless we act, unless we take difficult, painful decisions, unless we show determination and imagination, britain may not be in the future what it has been in the past. because the truth is this. we are in a global race today. and that means an hour

. [applause] and to get our country unless, to give britain on the rise we need a whole new economy. more enterprise, more aspirational, and this is taking shape over the. we're getting back our entrepreneurial streak. last year the rate of new business creation was fast than any of the year in our history. let me repeat that. the race in which new businesses started was faster last year than ever before. we are making things again. we had a trade surplus in cars for the first time in almost 40 years. and as such as the old industries that are growing. it's anyone's. we are never won an award for offshore wind. no one in the world for tidal power. we have the world's first investment green bank. britain on the rise. we are showing we can do it. look at the new investment. in the last two years, google, cisco, the big tech firms, they all set of new bases here. and we are selling to the world again. when i became prime minister i said to the foreign office, those indices you've got, turned them into showrooms for our cars, department stores for fashion, technology helps british stars. he o

who can make us one nation? who can bring britain together? what about the tories? what about the tories? i didn't hear you, what about the tories? let me explain why, let me explain why. i want to talk very directly to those who voted for david cameron at the last general election. i understand why you voted for him. i understand why you turned away from the last labour government. this government took power in difficult economic times. it was a country still coming to terms with the financial crisis. a financial crisis that has afflicted every country round the world. i understand why you were willing to give david cameron the benefit of the doubt. long think we've had enough to make a judgment. long enough to make a judgement because they turned a recovery into the longest double dip recession since the war. because there are more people looking for work for longer than at any time since the last time there was a conservative government. and here is the other thing, what about borrowing? borrowing. the thing they said was their number one priority. this year borrowing is ri

[applause] so next week maybe mr. cameron can tell us how much is he awarding himself in a tax cut? how much is that tax cut he is awarding himself? for a job, i guess he thinks is a job well done. how many of his other cabinet colleagues have checks in the post from the millionaire's tax cut? and how can he justify this unfairness in britain 2012. and of course let's not forget this tax cut wouldn't be happening without nick clegg and the liberal democrats. isn't it shameful that the party that supported, that implemented the people's budget of 1909, lloyd george's budget, is supporting the

of the democratic republican party that madison was leading. ostensibly a conflict with britain over national sovereignty, the american war of 1812 very quickly became instead a test or and in addition a test of the strength and meaning of american patriotism. now, we often tend to forget about the war of 1812. it is easy to lose track of it between the glory are of revolutionary independence movement and karnage of the civil war. but the war of 1812 does enjoy a certain dubious distinction of its own and that is it was the first war to ever be formally declared in a modern democracy. in a democracy public opinion matters. politicians gain and maintain power through the approval of the populace. in strict military and diplomatic terms the war of 1812 might have not have accomplished very much. by the end of the war the british burned washington, d.c. to the ground. the national debt nearly tripled from 45 million to a 127 million and all the united states had accomplished was getting the british to agree to maintain the status antebellum. that is keep all matters of diplomatic dispute exactly
